Migraine Headaches & Migraine Auras


 There are two major categories of migraines, separated in terms of whether an aura occurs:

  1. Classic type – these are migraines that include auras
  2. Common type – these are migraines without auras.

Migraine Auras

Migraine Auras are alerts issued by the physical body that a migraine attack is imminent. Many auras involve changes in the visual field, while other symptoms can include ringing in the ears or other sensory fluctuations.

According to WebMD, 20-30% of those who experience migraines get the classic, aura types of migraines.
Six classic migraine varieties are as follows (keeping in mind that these particular migraine subsets are unusual):

Hemiplegic migraine – Can involve temporary paralysis, numbness, or dizziness on one side of the body, a similar sensation to what's often experienced in a stroke.

Retinal migraine – Means that you lose vision in one eye, partially or fully.

Basilar artery migraine – Migraine headache typically associated with hormone deviations, such as that experienced during menstruation. Can involve lost equilibrium and a sense of incoherence.

Status migrainosus – Primarily characterized by its duration, this type can stick around for over three days. Hospitalization is often necessary.

Ophthalmoplegic migraine – This type paralyzes the ocular muscles. It can also be a warning sign of an aneurysm. Vision fluctuations often accompany it.

The above categorization is not the only way in which migraines can be defined or differentiated. For example, a "transformed migraine" is one which increases in frequency over time.

Part of finding relief from headache pain is looking for groundbreaking, innovative solutions. That's important because the science on migraines grows stronger over time. New approaches can enhance your chance of success. At MiRx Protocol we want you start feeling better today. Please review our solution to see if it might be right for you.



Sinus Headaches


Sinus headaches stem from inflamed sinuses, due to infection or allergic reactions. Allergies do not cause sinus headaches. They can cause sinus congestion, which can then trigger headache pain. Allergy treatments will not relieve headache pain; they should be treated separately. Sinus headaches are characterized by pain in the cheekbones, forehead, or nose.

Other symptoms:

  • Swelling
  • Fever
  • Nasal discharge
  • Pressure in the ears

Common Treatments

Treatment for sinus headaches usually begins with antibiotics for the infection. Then antihistamines or decongestants are used to treat the symptoms. Inhaled nasal decongestants can also be used for a very short time, if needed. Other drug-related options include pain relievers or corticosteroids to further decrease inflammation. Sometimes, simple measures like drinking more fluids, a humidifier or salt-water nasal spray can be helpful.

MiRxTM Difference

The MiRx Protocol uses a FDA cleared technology to deliver local anesthetic medication to the Sphenopalatine Ganglion nerve cluster (SPG). This can help bypass the need for multiple medications they may not work. Skip the extra headache pain and try something new. MiRxTM Protocol can also provide long-term relief. Contact a MirxTM doctor in your area to see if you qualify for this effective headache treatment.

Cluster Headache Causes & Treatments

cluster headache

Cluster headaches are characterized in cyclical patterns or clusters — which gives the condition its name. Cluster headaches are known to be one of the most painful types of headaches. Those that suffer from this type of headache come to know them as the "alarm clock headache" because it commonly awakens you in the middle of the night with intense pain in or around the eye on one side of your head.

Cluster headaches tend to last the longest with episodes lasting from weeks to months.  These frequent attacks, known as cluster periods, are usually followed by remission periods when the headache attacks stop completely. During remission, no headaches occur for months and sometimes even years.

Cluster headaches are extremely rare and not life-threatening.  Treatments have been successful at reducing the length of attacks and minimizes their severity.  Furthermore, preventive medications can help reduce the number of cluster headaches.

Common Causes

It is unknown what causes cluster headaches, however abnormalities in the hypothalamus have been consistant with cluster headache sufferers.  There is a regularity in the times of day these headaches occur over a 24-hour period, and they reoccur during same seasons of the year.  The connection between the time and seasonal reoccurance is what leads scientist to believe the hypothalamus is the source for these headaches.  The traditional triggers that are associated with other types of headaches are not a factor with cluster headaches.

Common Treatments

There are a variety of treatment options used to treat cluster headaches and each have a variety of effectiveness depending on the patient and severity.  Many of them require medical supervision because they are injection based procedures or inhalants.   Many of these procedures need to be used with caution because of complications with other health conditions and medications.

Those procedures include:

  • Oxygen therapy
  • Injection based procedures 
  • Nasal Spray/Inhaleants 
  • Prescription Pain Killers

MiRx Treatment for Cluster Headaches

MiRx Protocol and the FDA cleared Tx360® targets the same nerve clusters as prescription inhaleants and nasal sprays, however this is clinically tested to be more effective due to the 90% accuracy of the Tx360®.  This accuracy will provide faster and more effective pain relief.  To learn more about the MiRx Protocol contact a provider near you.

Trigeminal Neuraglia Pain & Treatment

trigeminal neuraglia

Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is a chronic pain condition that affects the 5th (trigeminal) cranial nerve. This is one of the head's largest nerves. TN causes sudden, extreme, and sporadic shock-like face pain that can last between a few seconds and two minutes. These episodes can happen in rapid succession and the differing intensity can be physically and mentally incapacitating. TN may run in families and is more commonly found in women and in people over 50 years old.

Causes of TN:

  • Blood vessel pressing on the trigeminal nerve as it exits the brainstem
  • The normal aging process
  • Multiple sclerosis patients (higher risk)

Common Treatment

Treatment options can include medicines, surgery, and combination therapy treatments. Most commonly, medicinal treatments are used, those being anticonvulsant medicines. Several different drugs are recommended on a patient-to-patient basis. Also, anticonvulsants paired with some other drugs in combination can be used. If medication does not relieve the pain, then patients could need surgery. Some surgical procedures are outpatient based and others may involve a more complex operation under general anesthesia.

MiRx Difference

The MiRx Protocol uses a FDA cleared technology to deliver local anasthetic medication to the Sphenopalatine Ganglion nerve cluster (SPG). Our success is in the ability to effectively target the specific cause of head pain from TN. More often than not, other treatment plans are npt targetted enough. MiRx Protocol can also provide long-term relief. Contact a MiRx doctor in your area to see if you qualify for this effective headache treatment.
